I know, nobody needs another “25 Can’t-Miss Superfoods” slideshow that makes you click “Next” 24 times.
Because as far as actually helping us to eat better, lists like these are pretty worthless.
The problem? None of them helps you to eat these foods habitually. We see the list, we make a mental note to eat more X, Y, and Z, and then we forget we ever read it as soon as someone sends us a cat video.
With that in mind, I present my version of the ubiquitous list — with a twist.
Although the foods here are the ones I actually do try to eat every single day, more importantly, I explain how I make sure to eat each one. And by making these foods a regular part of certain daily meals — salad, smoothie, etc. — you can make it an automatic habit that each and every day, the diet you eat is built around not just a random assortment of whole, plant-based foods, but the healthiest ones you can possibly eat.
